New Peaky Tours

Local historian Carl Chinn has launched 90-minute guided walking tours around Digbeth, sharing the real stories from the days of the Peaky Blinders.

The Peaky Tours (a name coined by myself I may add) will start at the Old Crown on Digbeth High Street and end at the Anchor on Bradford Street. Handheld projectors will be used during the tours to show contemporary pictures, bringing the history to life.

Digbeth Residents Association ran our own (free) Peaky Tours back in 2013, led by volunteers and residents passionate about the area and its history.

There will be a fee for attending these new tours (which are in no way affiliated to DRA or Digbeth is Good) – visit their website to learn more.

The Birmingham Mail recently ran an article giving more details here.
